MetadataShow full item record
Öz Background: The aim of the current study is to investigate the effects of activity-based exercise intervention for hallux valgus deformity. Materials and Methods: Forty women with hallux valgus deformity were included in the study and the participants were divided into two groups as intervention and control (intervention group 37.8 ± 7.20 years, control group 37.3±2.61 years). Before and after the 8-week intervention programme hallux valgus angle, activity-specific balance scale, dynamic gait index and foot function index were measured. Results: According to the results of the study in the intervention group, the hallux valgus angle decreased significantly in both the right and left feet after the treatment, and a significant improvement was obtained in the activity specific balance confidence scale, foot function index, pain, disability, activity limitation, and total score of foot function index (p<0.001). When the intervention and control groups were compared after the intervention, a significant difference was found in favor of the intervention group in the foot function index and pain, disability and total score parameters of the dynamic gait index (p<0.001). Conclusions: The results of our research reveal that the exercise applied for hallux valgus is effective in terms of balance, walking and function. It has been demonstrated that activity-based exercise is a good option in the treatment of hallux valgus, which is a very common deformity that should be taken seriously.
